Counting down the Top 100 comics of the year
Written & Drawn by Jeff Lemire
Published by Vertigo/DC Comics
The latest Vertigo series from modern master Jeff Lemire debuted by turning the comic book industry on its head -- literally. Launching with a flip book-style first issue, Lemire's hauntingly homegrown art matches his roughneck writing for 'Trillium' perfectly. And after telling epic stories with Lester, Gus and Jack Joseph, I'm loving the Canadian cartoonist's latest, which features a mercurial female scientist with a name that evokes the madness of Nikola Tesla.

Jeff Lemire has stacked mirror stories about a broken former soldier in 1921 and a crusading scientist at humanity's end on top of an intoxicating romance that breaks through that nearly 2,000 year gap. It's hard to believe that Lemire can wrap up this gargantuan story in only five more installments, but it's also exciting to know that this is quickly building to a grand conclusion.
